Moving on...

Last week was a little crazy, well more than crazy. After being in our apartment for close to 2 years, we received a letter from our Nazi like property managers that they had been notified of the presence of animals on the premises. Yes, our pussy-cat Nina (aka Anne Frank) had been outed to the Nazi's! I had a pretty bad day at work that day and came home to that letter, naturally making me feel much more crap!

We made the decision to move before they officially evicted us, mostly due to the fact that not only was there the cat issue but they now wanted us to remove the 6 small pots near our back door which we grow our yummy herbs. So pussy-cat, impending rent increase and a soul-less and herb-less house was sounding all a bit much.

So the MaMa's are moving on to a much better and bigger place (with a back yard too!) It's all working out, my tapestry is just about finished meaning I can dismantle my loom also my much larger than expected tax return should be arriving in the mail shortly.

I'm expecting this weekend that our car will look a little bit like the above when we collect the keys. We are looking forward to exploring a new area so expect some reviews and photos soon!

I hate moving but I do enjoy decorating a new house.

Manipulate: Construct exhibition, yep I'm in it.

manipulate construct poster

I finally decided to curate a tapestry exhibition at the gallery that I run, yeah, after 4 years! It features 9 tapestry weavers, both Australian and international as well as some of my own work.

It will be at Town Hall Gallery, rear, 358 Burwood Road in Hawthorn from the 3 to the 20 December. It's the last exhibition for the year. Hopefully we'll see you there!
For more info go here!

new hand madey shoes!

some stuff 005

witch style hand made shoes

I picked up my new hand made shoes yesterday, very exciting. Yes, I do like a witchy-point and I'm totally digging the pale grey colour, they will go with loads of my dresses, although they do remind me of old man's shoes? hmmm....

Anyway, very comfortable, very cute. They are even beautiful on the inside too with lovely gold printed lining!

Scandinavian prints

Bold print dress girls

I've been back in the sew, so to speak and have been making loads of dresses out of some wacky printed fabrics. I wore one of my creations on Friday for work and my groovy work colleague Helena also wore her amazing vintage dress that her mum made while pregnant with her!! It still looks fresh and modern, I was very impressed!

We decided that we needed to get a photo of us in our Scandinavian printed dresses looking very groovy at our favourite bar Baranows. Please note that I think this photo is taken after my 5th vodka gibson, so very flushed cheeks!
